SEPTEMBER 2020: Good news! My novel CATHEDRAL will be published by Europa Editions: the book should be out in the winter. Watch this space ...

I'm writing the script for FUZE - an action movie/thriller for director David Mackenzie and Sigma Films.

Meanwhile, I have recently completed work on the screenplay of VATAN (FATHERLAND) - the real life story of Musa X; an action-packed biopic that takes in much of recent Turkish and German history. The screenplay is co-written with Atilla Oener.

Fine-tuning work continues on INSIDE, a screenplay commissioned by Heretic Films in Greece... a kind of thriller set in a billionaire's penthouse...

and... I'm working on MEETINGS WITH MONSTERS, a documentary with John Goetz, for NDR/ARTE.The shoot was delayed by the Corona crisis, and will now pick up again in the autumn .

MARIONETTE, a film I co-wrote with director Elbert van Strien, has now been completed. The film is released in a few territories at the end of September.

And finally I've started work on a new novel. The working title is GHOSTS.
